Now in its 11th season, the SEFA Education Programme aims to enable players to make a successful transition from youth football to the semi-pro and professional game. In addition, it provides an industry-leading education programme with a wide range of academic options available to suit the needs of every learner.

On the pitch, players can expect full time coaching from our UEFA-qualified staff, nutrition, strength and fitness programmes, player analysis and a comprehensive fixtures schedule compromising of league games and showpiece friendly matches.

Off the pitch, each individual can tailor an academic programme to suit their needs and aims. Across our centres we offer a mixture of BTEC, A-Level (including courses at Chatham Grammar), football coaching and personal trainer courses.

Our proven – but ever evolving – programme opens up numerous pathways for our players as they make their way into the adult world. We have seen four students move into professional football, with countless others earning from the game at a semi-professional level from the National League downwards. Meanwhile, our education programme opens up routes into university both at home and abroad, while our existing Academy setup gives those interested in coaching the perfect opportunity to learn from our staff and earn a living working with our junior players.
